November 20, 2018 2018 Black Friday Deals and Bargains

Black Friday 2018 Deals While I can’t say on a personal level that I’m delighted about Thanksgiving being subverted away from a time of being thankful for what we have to being a season where we start looking for more, I also recognize the reality that we like to give gifts and retailers encourage us […] [Read more...]
